|I have been using Vista and decided to go back to my 32 bit XP. The problem is my XP disk does not fully boot up so I can install it. It loads up all the programs and just before windows starts up I get this error:|

I also had tried a friend's 32 bit XP with the same error so I know it is not my XP disk. When I bought this computer I had the option of putting XP on it so I know I can get drivers for it (already have downloaded it's wireless driver so I can get online for the rest). It appears to be that Vista is stopping me from loading the XP disk. I already have given my hard drive a low level format.
I have a gateway Model P-172x FX computer, GE force 8800M GTS video card, Intel duo core 2.4 Ghz processor, 4 gig of memory.
